Brad Pitt

We're happy to report that Brad Pitt is staying gainfully employed.

This time around, the studly one and director Andrew Dominik are reteaming on a movie whose title, thankfully, comes with lot fewer syllables than their last collaboration.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the duo that brought us The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford are joining forces on the briefly named comedy Cogan's Trade.

The film will find Pitt playing professional enforcer Jackie Cogan, who tries to figure out how a heist took place during a mob-protected high-stakes poker game.

Among the names being thrown about as possible costars include Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem.

Of course, getting Bardem should not be a problem.
